Picked this up for next to nothing, needs work but plays. The specs aren't the best but the sound is very good to me. I had a laugh at the Rube Goldberg cassette door mechanism and the solenoid to switch into record mode but then it is 35 years old. Yes, solidly built, the faceplate and knobs are machined aluminium and the steel is heavy gauge, it'll be awesome when I fix it.

I have two of these Sony units that I use in my studio for older grungy style work. The only thing I ever had to change was a light bulb and the belts, since 1977 or so. I added rack ears to them and they drop in place.
